Chelsea vs Manchester City Match Preview
Chelsea started the new season in Premier League with the defeat, but they have improved their performance and made few very good results, so now the difference between them and both teams from Manchester is only three points. Home side will have a chance to move up on the table if they manage to beat Manchester City at Stamford Bridge and stay in the race for the title. Last season champions don’t shine at home this season after they won only one of their last three matches, so they will be fully motivated to beat big rivals. Alvaro Morata has exploded in the previous game against Stoke City (0-4) and made his first hat-trick in new club. Chelsea’s midfielder and key player from the last season, Eden Hazard, has fully recovered from an injury, and he could start from the first minute which means that Willian or Pedro will move on the bench. David Luiz is back in team after suspension, so Chelsea’s manager will have even stronger defence, but we will see is that enough to make good result and beat very strong visitors.
Manchester City open the new season in Premier League on the fantastic way and after six rounds they are standing at the top of the table. Pep Guardiola‘s men are one of the main favorites to win the title this season, so the match against Chelsea could be crucial. If they manage to beat them away, they would make the big step forward. Meanwhile, Manchester City took another three points in the UEFA Champions League and beat Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0, so they are close to qualify in the next phase of that competition. Sterling and de Bruyne both hit the net, but Augero missed the penalty, so it will be interesting to see is he still the first choice to take eleven shots in Premier League. According to the latest news on the official Manchester City website, Sergio Aguero will be assessed by Club doctors today after being involved in a road accident on Thursday Visitors have the best attack in league, while their defence conceded only two goals, so home side will have to give their best in order to stay unbeaten. Aguero shines this season after he scored 6 goals, but he is not the only one who can be dangerous. Sterling (5 goals), Gabriel Jesus (4) and Sane (3) will also be potential dangers for Antonio Conte‘s team.
